Experience Berlin like a local, live in a 20th century flat in a quiet but central street in one of Berlin's oldest districts. Surrounded by bars, cafes and restaurants with the underground in front of the building.
We took the vintage elements of the flat and combined it with modern design and technology. You'll find Internet, a modern kitchen, a vintage bathroom with new fittings, TV, wooden flooring, build-in library and quirky features.
The neighborhood is one of the new up& coming districts in Berlin. According to one of my guest:
"Moabit/Mitte has become the new insiders' tip of Berlin. Just in front of the house are a couple of cool bars, a big supermarket and bakeries are around as well. So you have everything you need".
The quiet, courtyard facing bedroom sleeps 2 and in the big living room area you'll find another bed and a sleeping sofa. All beds and mattresses are brand new.
The place was refurbished in September. More details below:
Kitchen: brand new kitchen, fully equipped incl. coffee machine, toaster, microwave
Bathroom: retro look with new fittings, shower, hairdryer, towels are provided
Bedroom: cosy 2 single new beds and antique furniture (wardrobe, drawer, mirror), sheets are provided
Living room: built-in library, large dinner table, sofa (that sleeps 2) and an additional bed, TV
Wireless internet, parking in front of the building, pub style restaurant (with amazing schnitzel) and a small grocery store in the building. Underground station in front of the building which connects to east & west Berlin.
Free parking on the street. U-Bahn/ Tube station right in front of the building.

Really very close to metro station. Better location couldn't be! Parking in front of the house without paying. Clean and modern appartment, although the building is old. Negativ-There was only 1 toilet paper.
I would definetely recommend it!
such a great and stylish apartment in very nice neighborhood. A lot of bars, restaurants and food stores around. U-bahn station is in the same block. very easy to get the Tegel airport and main sights. Definitely felt that was very welcomed in Marleen's apartment. I would love stay there again !
First off,I actually do a lot of AirBnB. I was so excited because the apartment itself is very stylish.The location is great and in a very nice area of Mitte,and that is great for how most of Berlin really is. We lucked out with a fantastic place to eat across the street for bfast and everything; Lichtblick!
I honestly think that the Wifi is good,so is the location and the apartment.But I wasn't so happy with the fact that power outlets didn't work,lamps had no light bulbs,and there was no trash bin anywhere in sight. When we arrived the place is very clean,but the shower door doesn't close and the shower head holder is broken,so you had to sit to get the water on you.The beds:the double bed has a huge gap,so those married couples that need one complete mattress. are out of luck. The kitchen was stocked with things,but as soon as I grabbed a glass from the shrank, it was dirty,and so we just ate out.
Overall,the place is pretty to look at,but lacks some basic necessities. As far as Marleen,she was great on initial contact,but after I emailed her asking if we could check out later,there was no reply,so I called and also no answer. I think she might think we are silly university students that don't care about anything except drinking and partying. But we are not,we are business professionals (and German) and we usually are very happy with our AirBnB..because they have the basics,like working lights and a trash can.
I also have to note that I stayed on the weekend,so whoever stayed there from Monday-Thurs before us may have trashed the place..
Wonderful time in this beautiful apartment for new year's eve. Thanks Marleen!
We had a great stay at Marleen's flat. It's really spacious and conveniently located with public transport and supermarkets right out front.
Would definitely recommend.
Thanks for having us.

I'm originally from Berlin and recently moved back after having spent a couple of years in London and other places. Thought it's time to return to one of the most vibrant cities in Europe.. Let's see..
